Ryan is a multi-sport certified trainer and our favorite behavioral trainer! Ryan, however large in size himself has a calm reassuring approach to working with behaviorally challenged dogs. Ryan grew up in Pasadena, Maryland where he played soccer, basketball, lacrosse and baseball through his childhood. He started his love for dogs and more specifically working dogs when he got his first German Shepherd, Nilla. He experimented with Nilla in bite work sports along with an advanced level obedience that would then lead him on to his next projects including 2 German Shepherds and 2 Dutch Shepherds he raised and trained for various sports including IPO, Mondio Ring and French Ring. Ryan flourished in Denver over the past few years, becoming a trainer favorite to many of the 4 legged students that he comes in contact, particularly the protection dogs! Ryan has proven to have a heart as big as him when it comes to working with our rescue dogs and client’s pets as well. Ryan certified as a level 1 French Ring and Mondio Ring Decoy in 2018! Ryan also sold one of the dogs he trained for odor detection/nose work to the Colorado Springs bomb squad in 2018! When Ryan is not busy training his clients’ dogs, he enjoys training his own dogs in different sports and activities like Mondioring and French Ring Sports!
